as above so would like to say hi first

so we just picked up a 2004 diesel with 70k on the clocks garage we got it from give a years warrnty covering every thing witch is good if they pay out when needed.

first problem i find is it smokes a bit when you first start it in the morning i fined this strange as its had a new turbo on it in the last mounth so is there any thing i can look at to stop it i no all diesels smoke to a point as i have a tdi a4 but that runs clean evan cold i see on this focus the rear box on the exsuast has had oil all over it im thinking when the turbo whent it probly dumped it there would this be it there is no back box as such as where the pip starts at the back of the car its all pip till near the center of the car not sure it this is right as it has a none standerd chrome tip.

next is the drivers door locks but does not open boot and pasengers door work fine any ideas
